Gadget of the Week: Kitchen Shears

I know it's not a great picture, but this is what comes of having a camera phone that takes pictures that I can text to my email and a camera that, well, doesn't text. I'm Amish at heart, remember?

To the point (no pun intended) I wouldn't be half the mom I am without my kitchen shears. Do they have to be this brand? No. I don't even know what brand they are - Henkel maybe?

What do I do with them? E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G! Well, everything that requires cutting (or bottle opening).

Sandwiches, fresh herbs, veggies, chicken nuggets, pancakes, raw meat, cooked meat, I've even pruned with them.

Come to think of it, perhaps these awesome wonders of the gadget drawer (or knife block) should remain shrouded in a bit of mystery. Did I really just admit to cutting sandwiches, raw meat and pruning all with one item? Yes. Yes I did. Fortunately for all of us, they are also dishwasher safe. I love my kitchen shears!

What's your can't-live-without kitchen gadget?
